Webinar: The Science of Childhood Trauma and Family Separation

  • 06/28/2018
  • 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM
  • Online

The Society for Research in Child Development will host a webinar, "The Science of Childhood Trauma and Family Separation: A Discussion of Short and Long Term Effects," on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at 3 p.m. EDT. 

As the U.S. federal government begins the process of reuniting children separated from their families at the U.S./Mexico border, experts will explore the research evidence on how such separation experiences impact children's well-being. Developmental scientists will shed light on what the research indicates for ongoing child well-being post-reunification. Topics will include issues such as:

  • How the experiences of border detainees might compare to other cases of child separation such as when parents are incarcerated or deployed for military service,
  • How child trauma affects brain development, and
  • How the age of the child impacts the effects of these separation experiences.

Panelists include:

  • Cynthia García Coll, Ph.D., Associate Director of Institutional Center of Scientific Research, Albizu University, Editor, Child Development
  • Gabriela Livas Stein, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Clinical Psychology, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
  • Nim Tottenham, Ph.D., Associate Professor of Psychology, Columbia University
  • Moderator: To be announced
